Thomas Fleming to Speak in Kentucky

Soon Fleming Foundation readers living in the vicinity of Louisville, Kentucky will have a chance to encounter Dr. Fleming in person, for on December 6th he will be at the parish hall of Saint Michael's Orthodox Church to deliver the address “Shakespeare, Christian Moralist: Love, Family, Justice, and Hamlet.” The evening will kick off with a wine & cheese reception at 7 p.m., followed by Dr. Fleming's lecture and a Q & A session.

This free public event is sponsored by Immaculata Classical Academy, along with Holy Family Radio WCLR AM 1040. An independent Catholic school recognized by the Louisville Archdiocese, Immaculata has for several years now worked to foster regional community and fellowship via the annual Immaculata Speaker Series. Previous Immaculata lecturers have included literary critic Joseph Pearce, president of Thomas More College William Fahey, and Latinist-astronomer Christopher Graney. The Bard of Avon is the theme for this year's series, and a rewarding experience is in store for all as attendees can look forward to hearing not only Dr. Fleming's reflections upon the greatest of English poets, but also his thoughts about the Christian ethical alternative to liberal modernity.
